That might be one of the most offensive things I've heard recently.
First off, not all black individuals are supporting Obama. You're assuming they're voting based solely on race. Based on that logic, why am I, as a woman, not supporting Hillary? Why aren't Irvine and BVS as white males not supporting McCain?

I still can't understand how Obama's race would cause African Americans to question their loyalty to the Democratic party. If Hillary does something dirty that pertains to race ... she won't get the nomination. If she doesn't ... how does race factor in?

Diamond honestly seems to believe that all blacks are going to vote for Obama for the sole reason that he is black. He also believes all blacks think Hillary Clinton summarizes the views of every white Democrat. He also believes that black will interpret actions of Hillary Clinton to be racist no matter what.

That's the only way his statement makes sense.

All African Americans are exactly the same, just as every Mormon is exactly the same, right?

Dread said the same thing a little while back.

IF Michigan and Florida have redos, which is a big if, they would be caucuses, not primaries. Because the states, not the Party, pay for primaries, which are very expensive, and they're not going to cough up that much again.

That would be great if it happens. I'd be interested to see how or if the caucus results would change the current race. I'd love to have a chance to caucus for Obama.

Yep. When W took it from Gore through the Supreme Court I voiced my opinion that it was bullshit - as a white male I took it personally - I haven't voted for a Republican since.

Write it down ppl, I said it first.

I just heard on Air America that the Republicans are phoning the conservative talk shows all over Texas that they were disfranchised yesterday. The dummies followed Rush Limbaugh's instructions and requested a Democratic ballot at the primary so they could vote for Hillary. Then they found out that by doing, so they couldn't vote for the other Republicans that were running for other offices. Hillary's win in Texas and Ohio doesn't show that she can win in November because there were lots of Republicans that voted for her yesterday because they hate her.
Texas caucus results aren't in yet and Obama might have won the caucus there. Texas is kind of a strange place I should know because my state is neighbors with them and they come here to ski all the time.

THE TRUTH:
OHIO : Gave the world George W. Bush for 4 more years in 2004
TEXAS : Gave the world George W. Bush
OHIO : Four peaceful protesting students gunned down
TEXAS : JFK gunned down
OHIO : Helped elect John McCain in 2008 by voting for Hillary
TEXAS : Helped elect John McCain in 2008 by voting for Hillary

America get's what it deserves if it elects Hillary Clinton as the nominee of the Democratic party...John McCain!!!

It's terrifying, but I agree too.


Frankly I'm preparing myself for Chicago 1968 2.0

I know, I had to check outside to make sure it wasn't raining fire and brimstone.
